Ireland to Turkey

I want to ride my bike to Turkey in the next few weeks I have a BMW K1200R, I will get ferry from Rosslare to Cherbourg or do a land bridge through the UK..Then I think i would have to travel to the south of Italy and get a ferry to Greece and travel on to Turkey I am heading for Alanya where I have a place to stay. Anyone advice would be appreciated if anyone has experience of travelling this route before, Weather advice ? Insurance advice ? etc. etc.

Thanks in Advance

Jonny.
